The tenth anniversary, often called the tin or aluminum anniversary is the marker of your first decade of marriage to your loved one! This is usually considered your first major milestone of hopefully several more to come. Ten years celebrates a deep commitment to your partner, and you should be proud of yourself. Now go out and have some fun with your special someone.

Celebrating Your 10th Wedding Anniversary Traditionally

First, you can do anything traditional to celebrate your 10th wedding anniversary. Traditional gifts include diamond or tin. Tin celebrates the strength and flexibility needed in a marriage, and diamond celebrates the strength. Diamond or sapphire jewellery for her or cufflinks for him are a perfect gift. You can also choose any gift made out of tin or aluminum. This can include clocks, cuff links, jewelry, paper weights, tin toys and more. Most girls will probably appreciate the jewellery more. However; you can also choose silver or sapphire colored clothing as a more budget friendly gift.

Romantic Personal Dates

One of the most common ways to celebrate your 10th anniversary is to have a date. Red wine is often used to symbolize the 10th wedding anniversary so it makes a great choice to include, so long as both partners like red wine. Otherwise grape juice or any other beverage is just as suitable. Cheese is also a great choice because to many, it makes a great holiday food.

Another great idea is to take your partner out to one of your first date locations, or a favorite location that you would hang out at while dating. You might be surprise at how many old, romantic memories that resurface.

A simple, classic romantic dinner for two is always popular. Either stay home and cook your best, or take your spouse out to his or her favorite restaurant. The choice is up to you. Either way, it’s a great idea to present any gifts you might have during dinner, or while waiting for desert if you are in a restaurant. Nothing spells out romance quite like a romantic, candle lit dinner and a special gift. You can even arrange it as a surprise for your spouse if you choose, so long as you make sure they are not also planning a surprise.

A Second Honeymoon

The tenth anniversary is a great time to have your second honeymoon. After ten years of marriage, most couples deserve the chance to get away and just be alone. IF you have the money, try going to a romantic, tropical destination. Or you could go skiing, or hiking, or anything that you like doing together.

If you don’t have a lot of money for your 10th anniversary budget, taking a day or two and spending it at a hotel together can be refreshing and rejuvenating, especially if you have children. Whisk your spouse away from their busy life for one day, and be the center of their attention for that day. In a hotel room, you won’t have to worry about interruptions other than the TV or room service, and you can have as much romantic fun as you want. As a tip, bring games, photo books or even crafts to the hotel. Otherwise you might get bored and turn to the TV, which isn’t very romantic for anyone.

Daffodils are the flower of the 10th wedding anniversary. They represent cheerfulness, joy and happiness. In fact, they might just bring a smile to your partners face if you buy one or more daffodils for him or her. Enjoy your fifth wedding anniversary, and enjoy it together.
